Kindred Spirit

Alphabe-Thursday time again...and this week it's that krazy letter K. Since the letter K is not used in the Spanish alphabet, it's not found in the names of any of the places we've visited in Patagonia or in any of the descriptive words to describe them. Therefore, I'm taking liberties, once again. Are you starting to know more about me? heehee.

Usually, when we talk about kindred spirits, it's in reference to people with whom we feel some special connection. I believe that everything has a spirit...rocks, water, animals, plants, even the air. And I definitely feel a kindred spirit with Patagonia. It feels like home whenever I'm there. So, this week, I'm sharing another random sampling of images. Hope you enjoy them and feel some connection to them as well.














Click HERE to get to Mrs. Jenny's where you can visit the other Alphabetarians, many with whom I now feel a kindred connection, as well. Have a great week, and see you next time for more Patagonian wanderings.

I feel that way about nature, not neccessary a kindred spirit but when I look at a tree, I wonder how it came to be this tall or how its branches just curve in a certain -- it's easy to think it's just a tree until it's gone and then you wonder if that might have been you in another life.

sorry, just rambling here...

great photos. I hope you have a sweetd day.

Nice pictures again, Anita. Isn't it wonderful that there was a way for us to use the "K" letter for what we wanted to blog about. (Thank you for peeking in on our granddaughter's visit to the circus.) You always find some pretty unsettled territory to show us. The donkey car t scenewas precious.

National Geographic will have an expedition starting October 20th for 'Patagonia, Argentina, and the Chilean Fjords.' I think it will be too expensive for my blood though.

Yes, no doubt you've managed to capture the spirits of these beautiful places in your beautiful photos are impressive. Happy weekend.

Sorry, Anita. I pulled my glasses up and looked at it big [ http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ev1i96XzCLM/UBqvTdPTtvI/AAAAAAAAKbQ/FZGR8sSELkA/s1600/DSC_0115.jpg ] and sure enough, it is a horse and a dog. I had the dog as a cart wheel before.

I do notice though, that the dog and the man both have their heads down. Like travellig along in sadness. The horse has it's ears up but it also looks like, "well, I gotta go there."
..
Oh yes, I still like the picture, better yet I think.

My dear Anita,
Of course the pictures are beautiful but so are your words also (smile). I always give the Creator the credit first before His creation. Good post today my friend.

I felt so completely at home in Chile - not so much in Argentina - but you've put your finger on the feeling!
